Tom Turcich here. April 2nd, 2015 I left my home in New Jersey to embark on a five year trek across the seven continents. The dream of walking around the world formed at seventeen after my friend Ann Marie passed. Since her death I've decided to make the most of each day. I walk the world to become immersed in unknown places and be forced into adventure day after day. In Texas I adopted a dog, Savannah, and ever since we've crossed every border together. Savannah is my best friend and the ultimate walking companion.
Each night in my tent I do a little writing, generally these writings accumulate into a weekly post. In my writings I strive to convey the subtle variances in culture and environment, the strangeness of man, and how walking eight hours a day affects me. For a deeper dive into my experience, start reading.
